Surprise Your Best Friend with a Gift Based on Their College Major!
September 20th, 2019 by Catherine Marqueses
We love our best friends! They are always there for us to laugh with us, cry with us, stress over finals and just be the best companions in the world! They are one of the most precious people in your life and although you can sometimes disagree about some topics or views of life they are still one of the best people you ever met!
If you have been best friends for a long time and simply don’t have a clue what to get them for their next birthday we have made a list that can guide you in the right direction and help you find the best gift ever!
For a Lawyer to Be
If your friend is studying to become a lawyer there are several things you must have noticed by now. They are always on time, act super professional even when hanging out and love to always look top-notch. They usually carry around with them a lot of papers, their laptops, at least three phones and never seem to have enough space for everything they need.
A friend like that is going to wear only perfect exclusive leather handbags designed to please their delicate and sophisticated taste. So surprise your best friend with a handbag, they will want to carry around always and forever! Make sure it has a lot of compartments and that their laptop can fit into it.
Have in mind that even if all of the stuff they intend to carry around can’t fit into the handbag you know they will love, they will most certainly wear it on casual events! Slip a wooden mallet into the handbag and watch their funny reaction!
If you want to tease them a bit more find the most unfashionable, tacky piece of clothing preferably something in neon and see how their face changes from confused to laughing out loud!
The Medical Care Taker
Your best friend fascinated by the human body and its functions probably isn’t even yet fully aware of what awaits them once they’ve finished their training. Nonstop stress and hours of standing are what the majority of medical workers experience.
Surprise your friends and prepare them in advance by giving them the best support socks for nurses which are beneficial for medical workers in all fields! Also known as compression socks, they help people who need to stand for long hours by preventing blood clotting and by keeping the blood circulation flowing normally.
On the other hand, if you want to buy them a silly gift you can both laugh about consider giving them the Operation Electronic board game. If they haven’t played this board game before they will absolutely love it! A plastic stethoscope is also another silly gift they will surely laugh about!
The Know-It-All Philosophers
If your best friend is a philosophy major, they most likely have a lot on their minds. They are constantly worried about the nature of our reality and what it means to be a human being. Their head is often in the clouds although they will argue that they are the most logical and rational person they know–probably has something to do with Descartes cogito ergo sum.
Now you can either choose to make your friend super happy by buying them the complete works of their favorite philosopher, or you can make them even happier by buying them the complete works of a philosopher they absolutely hate!
There is nothing more philosophers love then to prove someone wrong! So if you invest in the complete works of someone they absolutely can’t stand they will have all the material needed to finally prove their arch enemy wrong and write the best thesis in the world!
And if you want to make your philosopher super mad and absolutely amused at the same time buy them an apron, they will know how to appreciate a good joke!
The Feel-It-All Psychologists
We all know our psychology friends are delicate people just trying to figure out their emotions and the emotions of others. They simply can not understand why people react the way they do and want to have full knowledge of the human psyche. They are fascinated by human emotion and want to understand the inner workings of every human.
They tend to analyze you which can sometimes annoy you but don’t worry our psychology friend tends to first and foremost analyze themselves. They are amazing listeners with the best advice they often forget to implement for themselves.
So, for them to not forget their own advice you can consider buying them a journal where they can write all of their worries, hopes and of course dreams!
You can also buy them a smoking pipe and a pair of old school glasses where they can channel their inner Sigmund Freud and/or Carl Jung. And if you want to make them laugh buy them the cheesiest self-help book you can find!
For Doctors of Journalism
Our journalist friend always knows the latest gossip. They know everything about everyone, they know the coolest places in town, the coolest people and are themselves super cool. They are a type of investigator, a detective if you want and they love to know everything!
They tend to show-off sometimes but you always forgive them because they are extremely funny and energetic! They are never in the same place, love to travel and are always meeting new people. They tend to be very fast thinkers so if you have a friend who’s into vintage stuff you should definitely consider buying them a voice recorder or a typewriter!
And if you want to tease them a little by how they can be all over the place buy them a knitting set or something similar that requires them to be still and concentrated at only one thing.
